In Reply to: Book mentioning Ransome: 36 Islands - by Robert Twigger posted by Magnus Smith on January 03, 2023 at 04:01:26:
I read the first two chapters of the bookseller's preview, and I'm afraid I found the writing rather disjointed.
A couple of Ransome's islands were mentioned among the three dozen listed, but really I thought the Ransome connection seemed to be pretty tenuous.
It's fair to say that seven of the eight quoted reader-reviewers gave the book five stars while one gave it only two -- and that person thought there was too much Ransome and not enough Lake District in it!
So you pay your money and take your choice. But you may not be surprised to hear that I myself have chosen to keep my funds where they are....
